In one article you presented, it states that Guatemala's corn yields have failed to meet their population increase. coincidentally the US has pushed Guatemala to use GM corn.

I am sure your one defender just happened to magically reappear less than 20 min after you posted.

Opinion and emotional reporting. No science or real data on why it didn't work.
Fluff and poor scientific writing. GM is not supposed to make your crops magically grow to epic proportions. It only give the crops a better fighting chance.
Since I don't have the actual report, only the synopsis, it is hard to judge this. However, UCS is an environmentalists group that doesn't hide their bias. Nothing wrong with that, but I can't just take their word for it without reading the study.
The only full study, but doesn't specifically list GM crops as a negative. It only states that yields don't differ much.
No reason to read this site. I don't need biased reporting.
I have no doubt that the companies involved in selling seed are skewing data in their benefit. That is marketing, and the same things happen in the organic food world. However, I also know that the global crops will not support our population growth. We can either cut the population (I am all for limiting breeding), or we will have to look to science for viable alternatives for food. GM may or may not be the right track. I think it needs to be studied in depth. I cannot support an outright ban or food boycott related to GM without more testing. In the meantime, I stick to local produce as much as possible. However, not everyone can afford to do the same. I don't think it is appropriate to start a global scare campaign without knowing if there is anything to fear.

Getting back to the reason for me starting this thread. I'll say it again. I posted http://m.youtube.com/#/user/Monsanto...ntoVideoRevolt to give people on here information about GMO's in terms of such things as detoxifying their bodies of them. Not to start a debate over GMO-non GMO.
So if you are not interested in the MonsantoVideoRevolt information, please don't troll on this thread.
As far as people thanking me, I guess you think I created Santiago58 a couple of years ago in foresight to irritating people like you. In fact I guess you think I created santiago58 1 year before I created archy. Get real.

That has nothing to do with the thread.
